    That's laughable. The league is turning into a passing league. Corners and Safeties that can cover are becoming more and more valuable. ILB/MLB are becoming commodities. You only need one stud 3-4 ILB. The other one can be had in the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th rd.

    Look around the league.
    I've seen the Steelers do this many times. A three man front with 2 ILB's and 6 DB's. Or like Ruthless said, 4 down with 2 ILB's and 5 DB's for their nickle package.


    Steelers 2014 Draft

    We'll never agree on the ILB as that high of a pick even if it is Te'o. Unfortunately it won't be settled because someone in the top 10 will jump at the hype and select Te'o before we can get a chance.

    Thaddeus Lewis is not going to beat the Steelers this Sunday.

    We will not be picking 11th.

    Also, I don't know what you mean about Jordan having a down year. Your the only person I have heard say that. He has done nothing but raise his stock. He had some injuries that forced him to miss some time, but he did not regress. Dion Jordan will be a top 20 pick and more than likely a top 10. He is an athletic freak and dropped into coverage quite a bit this year for Oregon. The Guy is 6-7 250 lbs and I have seen him cover receivers before.

    This guy does a great job breaking him down:

    Jordan sounds like the perfect player to head our switch to the 4-3 and play a real pass rush DE.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    3 (Comp). Jaylen Watkins, CB
    4. Justin Ellis, DT/NT

    Cept, Oregon plays a 3-4 hyrbrid defense and Jordan has been playing 3-4 OLB already.

    Hell give me Dion Jordan in the first and Kiko Alonso (ILB) in the second and I would be extremely happy.
